The first namaz-e-janaza of Jatiya Party chairman and leader of the opposition in parliament HM Ershad was held at the Army Central Mosque in Dhaka Cantonment after Zohr prayers on Sunday.  

The janaza took place around 1:45pm.

Ershad, a former military strongman, died in the morning while undergoing treatment at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH). He was 89.

Ershad, a former president and five-time MP, breathed his last at 7:45am.

The Opposition Leader’s second janaza will be held at the South Plaza of Jatiya Sangsad at 10:30am on Monday.

Later, his body will be taken to the party’s central office at Kakrail to allow Jatiya Party leaders and activists to pay their last respects. After Asr, another janaza will be held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque.

His body will be kept at the CMH mortuary. It will be flown to his home district Rangpur on Tuesday where his fourth janaza will be held after Zohr prayers at the zilla school grounds. He will be laid to rest at the Military Graveyard in Banani the same day.

Ershad’s Qulkhwani will be held on Wednesday at Gulshan’s Azad mosque.
